Rhws Primary School is a happy, welcoming primary school situated in the village of Rhoose, approximately five miles outside Barry in the Vale of Glamorgan.


The school was officially opened in 1933 and is two form entry. We also have a Nursery which allows for 45 pupils per half day session. Children can start Nursery in the term after their third birthday.




For all members of the school community we aim to;


  • Nurture independent, confident, aspirational learners equipped with the skills necessary for the challenges of a lifetime of learning. 

  • Provide opportunities for individuals to achieve their potential through the delivery of a relevant, flexible and innovative learning programme which celebrates success.

  • Create a welcoming, happy, healthy, safe and environmentally friendly school in which all are listened to and valued for their contribution.

  • Form positive relationships with families in order to develop personal responsibility, mutual respect and understanding through the promotion of clear moral and social values.

  • Establish strong links with the locality  and develop an appreciation of what it is to be an active and informed citizen of Wales, the United Kingdom and the global community.
